Class of 2018 Middle Village (N.Y.) Chris the King defensive back Jarrett Paul is still looking for his first offer, but is on the radar of a number of programs early in his recruitment. One of those schools is the big in-state program, Syracuse. Paul visited the Orange on Saturday for the first time and got to take in their game against No. 1 Clemson.
"I loved the atmosphere in the Dome," Paul said. "And I loved the energy that 'Cuse brought to the field."
"It was my first time visiting, so he (coach Adam) was glad that I made the trip," Paul said. "He said our relationship will develop more once they're able to contact me. A few of the other coaches like coach Reed and Acosta told me that my best bet is to come camp in the summer."
Paul is going to try to do just that in order to continue to keep him on the mind of the Orange coaches.
While it is far too early to declare any favorites, Paul says his interest in Syracuse is strong. Especially if a certain friend of his decides to pick the Orange.
"I'm really interested in 'Cuse," Paul said. "I always liked 'Cuse. Now that I got to experience what 'Cuse is like on game day, I like it even more. I'm also friends with Noah Jordan-Williams. So that can effect my chances of ending up at 'Cuse.
"If he ends up there, I would definitely lean to 'Cuse. Coach Acosta said he wants to keep all the New York targets home."
Paul has also visited Boston College and hopes to take more trips in the near future.
